DIY lemon citrus scrub
Serves: 4 – 3 oz containers
  • 1½ cups natural, coarse sea salt
  • ¼ cup light olive oil (or almond or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1–2 drops natural lemon essence (optional)
  • 4 sealable containers
  1. Combine oil and sea salt together (if using something other than coarse sea salt, add olive oil in small increments so the mixture isn’t oversaturated).
  2. Add lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon essence.
  3. Fill containers and store at room temperature.
  4. Include instructions for use: Prior to leaving shower, apply scrub all over body in circular motion and rinse well.
Olive oil is a powerful antioxidant, but you can also substitute almond oil—it’s ultra-hydrating and full of Vitamin D. Or add coconut oil, which is nourishing and great for sensitive skin.
